AMD FireStream 9250 compute accelerator validated for HP ProLiant Servers as part of HP Accelerator Program
HAMBURG, Germany, June 24 -- Today at the International Supercomputing Conference (ISC), AMD announced that AMD FireStream 9250 compute accelerators are now qualified as part of the HP Accelerator Program to deliver the significant performance benefits of GPU acceleration to a wide array of enterprise and High Performance Computing (HPC) customers using HP ProLiant DL385 G5p and DL160 G6 servers. The massive parallel processing power and double-precision floating point support on the AMD FireStream 9250 compute accelerator make it well suited for the most demanding compute applications.
"Customers in the financial services, security, as well as scientific research industries leverage hardware accelerators to help maximize application performance and lower total cost of ownership," said Jim Ganthier, vice president of marketing, Industry Standard Servers, HP. "The AMD FireStream 9250 compute accelerator optimizes the performance of HP ProLiant servers to help improve application efficiency and drive engineering advancements in these compute intensive environments."
"AMD is committed to driving widespread adoption of GPU technology for accelerated computing to improve application speed and efficiency for end users," said Patricia Harrell, director of Stream Computing, AMD. "By working closely with our technology partners, we feel we are making large strides in delivering solutions that take advantage of increasingly important GPU technology for general purpose applications that help solve businesses most complex computing problems.
